SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2016) - Zoomdata, developers of the world's fastest visual analytics platform for big data, today announced a new educational initiative to help navigate the complexity of big data analytics, by launching a video series taught by big data experts to help businesses understand and successfully implement big data Analytics on a modern data architecture.
"As the big data ecosystem evolves, new challenges arise followed quickly by new technologies, solutions, services, and products that address them. These are widely diverse and can be challenging to fully understand or keep up with. Big data is still too damn complex," said Ruhollah Farchtchi, CTO, Zoomdata. "The Business Analytics Master Class is a great way to get comfortable with the concepts, tools and architecture of big data analytics, see what it's about and ultimately how your company can best leverage it. Some of the industry's best and brightest will help demystify big data and get you started. These videos will teach developers just what they can do, and the best ways to do it."
A 2015 Bain & Co. survey of 325 global companies found that 59% believed they lack the capabilities to generate meaningful business insights from their data. What's more, according to Gartner analyst Nick Heudecker, "Thru 2018, 70% of Hadoop deployments will not meet cost savings and revenue generation objectives due to skills and integration challenges."
"There is a startling array of big data analytic tools out there and so many ways to use them," said Wayne Eckerson, founder and principal consultant of the Eckerson Group. "Zoomdata's Master Class is a great way to learn what's possible in an easily digestible format."
The Business Analytics Master Class series will offer industry experts discussing the tools, technologies, architectures and processes that can help any business, novice to advanced, navigate the complexity of big data analytics. The class will begin with a marathon of videos from Eckerson, followed by weekly videos from other leading analysts and educators, including Matt Aslett of 451 Research, and Eric Kavanagh, CEO of The Bloor Group.
